I Am Capable To Serve As President: Tinubu
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’s nominee for president, has once more defended his physical fitness by asserting that no one with a serious illness can do seven trips as he did during Umrah.
Shortly before his arrival back in Saudi Arabia, Tinubu made the remarks in an interview with Freedom Radio, Kano’s top independent radio station.
In contrast to the Hajj, which has set dates according to the Islamic calendar, Umrah is an annual pilgrimage to Mecca that is performed by Muslims.
On Sunday night, the former governor of Lagos State landed at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport in Abuja, where he was welcomed with open arms by party members and loyalists.
The APC’s nominee for president said he is qualified for the position and that those who disagree with him only have lies and conjecture to spread.
I recently finished the Umrah, he declared. I traveled by myself on the seven Tawaf rounds and the seven excursions between Safa and Marwa. Can someone who is ill do that?
“The individuals making those hints have nothing but falsehoods to say. To address various audiences, I have moved about, talked on various stages, and stood for extended periods. I could not walk, they claimed in the past. They claimed that I couldn’t stand it, yet they feel embarrassed.
“I have gathered more original ideas than anyone else since the campaign began. I have proven to have the expertise, experience, and a strong aptitude for keeping up with national concerns. Additionally, this position involves concepts and problems relating to our nation’s leadership. I am requesting the citizens of the nation to have faith in and respect for the fact that I am fully qualified to serve as president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Take a look at my experience and prior projects. I want to give my country my very best service.
